Out on the east coast of Nova Scotia!

It was a great vacation! Lots of inspiration in everything I see on the coast. From the ocean, beaches and food but most of all the people. I love going home to Nova Scotia. The walks along the board walks to the sound of the wave makes by pulling the ocean over the rocks.

I have many, many lovely pictures to create new art work and I can’t wait to get started. I did get to paint while on vacation. I created two small paintings.

I do have a few shows coming up! August 22nd at the Richmond Village Farmers Market which has been moved to the village. I will be participating in the Wall Candy show at the Wesley Clover Park, on Corksdown Road, Kanata Sept 11th and 12th. Plus, other dates in September so I will confirm them in the next week and let you know.

Also, while in Nova Scotia I had my artwork printed on many bags for the Wall Candy show by Mint River Promotions.

I have been relaxing but now it is time to get back to work. Hope to see you at one of the shows and chat.

It’s Summer!

It’s summer and I can’t wait to get out and move around! I have been working on new work and working behind the scenes on a few projects.

I have finally had a chance to work on my website and I have added a new page called ” Other Art Projects”. On this page I will be show casing my other art interest like designing my tote bags with my art work, cards, painted shoes and resin designs. It has been fun working on these projects and I plan to create more.

I have started painting portraits. This is very challenging for me as I like to draw and it is so different in the thought process and colour placement. I do enjoy it even if at times it is little stressful. The first portrait is called Hannah and it is on the website under Portraits.

I have joined the Richmond Village Farmers Market (Richmond, ON) for 5 different Sundays. The next Sunday I will be at the market is July 11th and 18th. Hope to see you there. Follow my Instagram and Twitter accounts for the up to current dates and times.

I have art work currently displayed at the Gather and Grow in Richmond, ON. I am with sharing wall space with the Richmond Village Art Club and other local artist.

Have a great summer, stay safe and I will keep you up to date about Salena Draws.

Thank you,
